Aga
Aga is a 53 year-old man. He is an Internally Displaced Person (IDP) who lives in the Bilasuvar IDP Settlement with his wife and two children. As his pension is very low, he has been trying to find additional income sources. As such, he is a farmer and he has raised seasonal fruits and vegetables for the last ten years. He chose this business because it is profitable and fresh crops are in high demand. People use fresh vegetables everyday and consider them healthy. In fact, many national dishes are made of vegetables such as pilau and dolma. Fresh fruit is served at every meal in Azerbaijan and also makes fresh punch.

Aga sells his crop in the Bilasuvar Central Bazaar. His monthly income is 130 AZN. His wife actively helps him to raise the crop.

As these products are in high demand, Aga wants to expand his business and produce more fruits and vegetables to cover market demand. For this purpose he has applied for a loan of 1000 AZN. He will buy new garden tools, seeds and fertilizers. This will be his second loan and he has a positive loan history.

Additional Information

More information about this loan

This loan is designed for clients residing in settlements for Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) in Bilasuvar, Azerbaijan. An internally displaced person (IDP) is someone who has been forced to flee his or her home due to armed conflict, violence, human rights violations, or natural or manmade disasters, but who, unlike a refugee, has not crossed an international border (source: UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs). Many of these people have failed to qualify for loans through formal channels due to low income and lack of collateral. By funding this loan, you are creating opportunities and supporting economic development in extremely underserved communities.
